      This page is intended to gather test results and other pertinent information from MAWC regarding the CNX Natural Gas drilling pressure anomaly at the Shaw 1G well on Jan-Feb 2019.

      To date, all results indicate normal background levels of 179 substances and parameters tested for. Test results are posted below.

      While every effort is made to keep this information current, you may wish to consult the Department of Environmental Protection and CNX for new information. DEP cited CNX. The Notice of Violation is below.

      TESTING DATA

      Prior to any deep well being fractured on MAWC property, weekly sampling of the reservoir begins a month before the commencement of hydraulic fracturing. This is to establish a baseline of water test results. Please see the maps below for sampling sites.

      After receiving notice of the Shaw pad incident, MAWC commenced daily testing until CNX provided notice that the well had been successfully remediated. Testing continues three times a week.

      WATER WELL TESTING

      The PA Department of Environmental Protection has asked that questions about private water well testing be referred to Dan Counahan, Program Manager in Oil and Gas at 412 442-4006.

      A CNX contractor contacted homeowners within a 1-mile radius around the conventional oil and gas wells that were flared during the event and offered to screen such wells to ensure there were no impacts. For questions, please call the DEP at the number above.
